This was an absolutely perfect fishing trip. Captain was great, he showed us some great fishing spots and lost the count of how many fish we reeled in.Our highlight was hooking and fighting a big barracuda before the barracuda broke through the wire leader!

I would gladly recommend captain Mo to everyone!

My Wife and I first met Capt Mo at the Pathfinder Boats booth of the 2013 Ft. Lauderdale Boat Show. We enjoyed his demeanor and personality so booked him for a full day in Key Biscayne 03/01/14 on our way home through South Florida from Argentina. We spoke the day before and laid out the plan. Our major goal was to experience for the first time a variety of the shallow water fishery in and around Key Biscayne as we usually stay and fish the middle and lower keys. Cap Mo nailed it as we started the day with rolling Tarpon near the beach. It was my first time with a 12wt and sink tip. Cap Mo taught me the advantage of a double haul. No Tarpon but a great lesson. From there we hit a couple of grass flats targeting Trout. The quality of the flats surprised us as they were only a few hundred meters from residential and commercial buildings and docks. While in one we saw a massive Hammerhead that was following Tarpon. After the flats we moved in to a finger channel and caught our fair share of reef fish including several very nice Muttons. This was my wife’s favorite as the action was non stop. Great day with big smiles and good times with Cap Mo. I highly recommend Cap Mo to anyone looking for a non pretentious and extremely friendly, flexible guide who puts the client first.

Spring break trip with our 9 year old who was new to fishing. Chartered Miami Bonefishing for 1/2 day AM on a Wednesday, and stayed In-shore just to bend a rod and get the saltwater experience. Great communication from Capt Mo regarding weather and fishing conditions as a nasty cold front moved in the day before. Also really appreciated his interaction with my son and the genuine excitement for fishing he helped trigger out on the water. Conditions were difficult but the sea trout were fun to catch, lots of strikes, and they made for great pics. Stable and safe boat, great tackle, great guide and conversation. Highly recommend and will use this guide again.

My two teenage boys and I fished with Captain Mo on 4/24/14. What a great day! Captain Mo was very knowledgeable and accommodating to our skills. We were able to land a fly rod hooked Tarpon that was estimated at 100 lbs. As a longtime fly fisher, this day was spectacular! Fishing in Biscayne Bay was wonderful. The Miami skyline and the diversity of fish available were impressive. I would highly recommend Captain Mo if you are in Miami/South Florida and looking for a great day on the water.

2nd time with Captain Mo. Much better weather this year. Hit Tarpon almost immediately and tied up right after sunrise. Mo is very knowledgeable and is eager to share it. Did my first Miami flats which on their own were an incredible experience but add sharks, barracuda, permit,bonefish and tarpon and its unforgettable.
